    tangent

    Hi

    There is a beautiful tangent in this song.

    --- Does "tangent" mean that probably there are some lines which are not connected with the rest of the lyrics.

    No. Without your explanation as to your intended meaning, no one would know what on earth it meant.

    Without an example, it is hard to come up with the right expression for you. I can't see what you mean by, somewhere in a song, there are suddenly "lines that are not connected with the rest of the lyrics."

    Re: tangent

    Hi David.

    All I know is that a singer is talking about one of his songs and he suddenly says: There is a beautiful tangent in the midst of this which makes the song for me.

    Maybe it's just an abbreviation of : go off on a tangent. So he suddenly starts singing about a completely new subject.
